THE GAME SELLER, FROM THE PICTURE IN THE NATIONAL GALLERY. ANOTHER CLAIMANT FROM WAGGA WAGGA. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 6 September 1873

THE GAME SELLER, FROM THE PIOT*URE IN THE NATIONAL GALLEKY. ANOTHER CLAIMANT FROM WAGGA WAGGA. Wb do not wish to alarm readers, and especially English readers, with the anticipation of another man of enormous bulk and stolid self-possession coming to lay claim to the estates of some old-country family, and to give rise to a course of litigation that may occupy the London papers for months or years to come. The present case is not calculated to occasion any such terrible apprehensions. But, nevertheless.it is a rather remarkable one, independently of the odd coincidence that the claimant conies from the town of Wagga Wagga. The matter is this. Sometime ago a squatter in Gipps Land, named Patrick Coady Buckley, died possessed of property amounting in value to some £50,000. It appeared that he bad made no will, and as he had no relatives the property was in the hands of administrators, and would have fallen to the Crown. Indeed, the Attorney-General has com. menced proceedings against ...

E.; when she' was overtaken by a fearful storm which swept her decks; smashed her boats; destroyed her saloon, caused the loss of her masts, washed overboard her charts and all navigating instruments, and inflicted other serious damage. ' The following extracts from the -; log arid the diary of Captain Davies will best exhibit the fearful trials the gallant ship passed through : — ' 'There was every prospect of making* a 78 days' passage until July 14, in lat. 45deg. 20min.S., when, the wind, which had been shifting about from N.W. to W., freshened gradually.

THE LABOUR MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 October 1873

THE LABOUR MARKET. Briskness in the building tradesstill continues, and con tractors find it extremely difficult to obtain a sufficient number of skilled workmen to carry on their business. The demand for female servants, both in town and country, still continues greatly above the supply. Single. female servants for country situations can hardly be obtained, and married couples without families have been paid as high us £90 per annum for stations. Business in every other occupation is tolerably brisk, and good workmen can readily obtain employment. The following are the rates of wages paid : — Domestic Servants. — For Town — Housemaids, £26 to £36 per annum ; female cooks receive from £35 to £52 per annum, mule do. 20s. to 70s. per week ; nursemaids, £25 to £30 per annum ; laundresses, £30 to £40 per annum.

THE CARL CAPTIVES. The Fiji Times of August 13 reports: — ''H.M.S. schooner Alacrity (Captain F. W. Saunders) returned to the port of Levuka last Saturday, her trip to the Gilbert and Marshall groups of islands with return Carl labour having occupied seven weeks. The schooner would have arrived a week earlier but for expe riencing bad weather when almost within sight of Fiji that compelled her to put back ; and this trip entitles her to retain the reputation she had already won as a fast sailing clipper. The Alacrity left the Yasawns on the 19th June with 27 Carl kidnapped labourers on board ; reached Drummond Island, in the Gilbert Group, on the 28th June; Miana on the 1st July ; and Milli, in the Marshall Group, on the 5th July, having accomplished tlie 1,500 miles in 16 days, including stoppages to land labour at five different towns.

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 October 1873

CHRONICLE OF THE MONTH. Wb givo elsewhere a full account of the. proceedings which led to the , discharge of Mount and Morris, twor prisoners undergoing punishment for manslaughter on the high seas. The particulars of the celebrated Carl case; and the atrocious massacre of South Sea natives are' not likely soon to fade from public recollection, either. here or in England. It will be seen that this failure of justice has been brought about owing to a childish, refusal on the part of the Government to ask the Secretary of State to proclaim one of the prisons in Victoria as a place -where men convicted under the Imperial act may be confined, in conformity with 16 and 17 Viet, y cap. 99, sec. 6. The country cannot fail to look on the mismanagement in this matter with grave 'disapproval, for its fair fame in .the eyes of the. world is involved in making manifest its hatred of man-stealing and its determination to do its utmost to punish those guilty of the crime. With an infatuation whic...

A RAILWAY TRAIN ON FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 October 1873

A RAILWAY TRAIN ON FIRE. The Sydney Morning Herald of September 2 states: — 'Late on the afternoon of Saturday lust, as the. train which leaves Windsor shortly after 4 o'clock was coming towards Sydney, and while distant a few miles from Blacktown, a passeuuer in tho most remote carriage from the engine, to his grout surprise and consternation, noticed a dense cloud of smoke as -well as ilaincs issuing from a luggage van next, to the carriage in which he had, together with four other passengers, been seated, and -which contained, furniture. The passengers, as might naturally have been expected under tho circumstances, were very much nlnrined for their safety. They at last by their cries attracted the attention of the engine-driver and guard. One of the male passengers jumped out whilb tho train was pursuing its courso Sydney wards, and was fortunate enough to escape almost scatheless. A lady also attempted to make her exit by tho' window, but was fortu nately detained in tho carriag...

The Theatres [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian Sketcher with Pen and Pencil — 4 October 1873

Mrs. Bates concluded her engagement at the Theatro Royal on the 13th ult. She left an impression that, if her very considerable natural abilities had been better disci plined, she would have been a finished as well as a clever actress. There were parts in her acting suggestive of a high degree - of dramatic power, but there were also other parts suggestive of a degree of what is best described by. the familiar term of staginess. For this term, though probably hackneyed, is very expressive, and well describes that kind of acting which is based upon an estimate of requirements measured according to what other actors do, rather than according to what tho character may be supppsed to do under given circumstances. ' No doubt there are different kinds of staginess, and there is even a large class of other wise intelligent porsons who, contend that, it is j-roper to represent some characters in a manner different frojm. what they would be in real life. These persons claim for charac ters b...

Rouse, from on board the Claud Hamilton, on the voyage from Melbourne .to New- Zealand.
